Self-Reliant Diver

Although most scuba dives are made with a buddy, an experienced diver may want or need to make dives without a partner. During the Self-Reliant Diver course, you learn about potential risks of diving alone and the value of equipment redundancy and necessary back-up gear. During three scuba dives, you develop skills for self-reliance and independence, while becoming a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.

What You Will Learn

The PADI Self-Reliant Diver course:

 

  • To develop the skills of planning and carrying out dives without a partner when preferred or necessary.

  • To sharpen the skills of diving self-reliance, making the diver a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.

  • The course covers aspects where diving alone may be applicable, and the need to compensate for those situations, including dive planning, life support system readiness, adaptive training, equipment and responsibility. This course is an introduction to self-reliant diving that helps student divers develop the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary to rely on themselves first, whether or not they are diving with a partner, including:

    • The value and application of the buddy system.

    • The philosophy of, and motivation for, diving without a partner.

    • Potential risks of diving alone, and how to manage those risks.
